Tuesday, November 16, 2021

Primacorp Ventures helps Social Diversity for Children Foundation achieve fundraising goal as a platinum sponsor during annual gala event.

On Saturday, November 6, Primacorp Ventures attended the Social Diversity for Children Foundation’s annual gala as a platinum sponsor. The Once Upon a Shine Gala 2021 was held at the Westin Bayshore and featured a number of renowned guests and sponsors.

“We strongly believe in investing in the leaders of tomorrow,” says Dr. Peter Chung, President and Chairman of Primacorp Ventures. “It was an honour to be chosen as a platinum sponsor and attend this wonderful, heart-warming gala.”

The Social Diversity for Children Foundation aims to empower children with disabilities to reach their full potential. With programs led by other youth, they are able to amplify the voices of young leaders and create equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of ability.    

“Arts can help children with special needs improve in academic areas and build friendships,” said David Wang, Founder and President of Social Diversity for Children’s Foundation. “Arts can also build confidence and bring students great joy.”

Featuring unique and heartfelt stories, art, and musical showcases, this black-tie event aims to raise funds for after school programs, such as music therapy and painting. The Once Upon a Shine Gala 2021 raised over $450,000, surpassing and exceeding their fundraising goal.

“The Once Upon a Shine Gala works towards creating a vision of a larger puzzle that incorporate all members of society, and not just those that fit into an outdated mold,” says Wang.

Social Diversity for Children Foundation (SDC) is a Canadian registered charity that empowers youth to empower children with disabilities. SDC amplifies the voices of passionate young leaders who believe in equal opportunity, regardless of ability. Learn more here.
